0–5 Lesson Plan: Slow to Become Angry

Note to parent or teacher: Here’s a 20- to 30-minute class plan on controlling one’s temper.

*

ReadSlow to Become Angry.”

Discuss how when we say things in anger, we can hurt others by our unkind and thoughtless words. This is why the Bible says, “The tongue is a small thing that makes grand speeches. But a tiny spark can set a great forest on fire” (James 3:5 NLT). Talk about how even small words can set off big emotions, how an unkind word can cause someone to cry, and how a kind and gentle word can make someone’s day.

WatchStay Sweet.” This video features ideas of what to do when faced with a situation where it could be easy to lose one’s temper.

Memorize the verse “A gentle answer turns away wrath” (Proverbs 15:1 NIV). You can help your children write this verse in their notebooks or somewhere easily visible throughout the day.

ReadLove Focuses on the Good.” Do the action on the last page of this article.

WatchI Get Along with My Brother.” Brainstorm ways to resolve common conflicts that arise with your child. It may be good to discuss how when you are feeling angry or upset, that probably isn’t the best time to try to talk to the friend or peer causing the upset. Waiting till one is calmer, or talking about one’s feelings with a parent or teacher can also help to set things right.

ReadHow Do We Love Others?” Do the action on the last page of this article.
